she cleans up nice

By popular demand, I donned fancy clothing and lipstick on a study-hard weekend for y’all…

A close re-creation of the outfit I wore to the rachel’s wedding. She’s already back from her honeymoon, I’m running a little behind. I had my hair down and hot-rollered, and I’m not wearing makeup in these shots, but you get the idea.

Dress was about $90 from le chateau, and necklace and shrug were (of course!) by me. I’ll do a separate post about the shrug, but it served well and was a pretty quick knit (which I finished the morning of!).

I think it all came together quite nicely! And since I don’t often have occasions for which to dress up, it was fun.

    That dress is gorgeous. The necklace is a nice splash of color.

    I’m knitting Thermal and I have a question. When I did the decreases on the back section after binding off for the arms I did the three stockinette stitches on each side. Now that I’m done with the decreases do I still keep those three stitches on each side in stockinette? The pattern doesn’t say one way or another and I wasn’t sure.
    Love the pattern and I’ll be making my donation to Knitters without Borders soon.
